HOURS PLEDGED: 35

THE STORY:

What is the “Transcontinental Project” all about? 

The campaign was created by Jefferey Perez, a GK Alumnus from Long Island City High School who, along with his friend Adam Clark, will set off on August 17th 2011 from the shores of New York to run on foot all the way to California! Through this amazing feat, Jeffrey and Adam hope to inspire others to assist them in raising $20,000 for two charities that have gone the distance for them. (For more information, please visit www.transcontinentalproject.com)

What can you do to help?

We are asking you to support Global Kids and Jeffrey by being a virtual coach for the Transcontinental Project. Virtual coaches will assist Jeffrey by sending tweets, songs, videos, and quotes to inspire and motivate him throughout his journey.  In addition, coaches are asked to raise at least $100 for Global Kids by the time Jeffrey and his friend reach the Pacific Ocean.  No worries if you’ve never raised money before! Global Kids will assist all coaches in setting up their own fundraising page on crowdrise and in coming up with a strategy for success for their mini campaigns.

On August 15th 2011, we are having a prep rally pasta party at Global Kids Headquarters to wish Jeffrey well on his journey. We hope you will join us for this fun chance to meet the TCP runners and to get to know the other virtual coaches.

Why does Jeffrey feel running for Global Kids is important?

"Global Kids inspires troubled youths to “achieve academic excellence, self-actualization and global competency”, and for me that became a reality. During my senior year of High school I began questioning my entire academic experience and wondered if I was robbed of my education. I didn’t learn much during my previous three years of high school, but that final year I felt driven to learn everything I could, and in doing so I learned something about myself - my passion for charity. I wanted to follow the vision of Global Kids, which shined a light on issues I couldn’t see for myself.  They opened my eyes to other organizations that had similar goals, such as Circle K and Caliber. I wanted to do something bigger. I craved to do something that would truly give back to the world that gave a teenage boy the opportunity to achieve more than he ever dreamed possible." -Jeffrey Perez
